Welcome to Class Act, our award program which encourages schools to spread kindness around the world. Kindness comes in many forms, all of which have a positive impact on communities both locally and globally.
The award winner will be the group that is the most inventive in performing an awesome act or acts of kindness. They will receive $8,000 (or their country’s equivalent) for their school and have the opportunity to be featured on social media to serve as an inspiration to others.
The acts or projects can either be something planned and completed specifically for the Class Act award, or it can be something your classroom or school is already doing.
Please watch the video below for more information on the new Class Act Program!

Terms and Conditions
The Class Act Award is specifically designed for classrooms, whole grade levels, school groups, or entire schools. All participants (excluding any teachers who are assisting) must be 18 years of age or under and in full-time education. Homeschoolers are also welcome to participate; however, the awarded funds must be donated to a non-profit in lieu of being donated to a school. Should a homeschooled child or group win, they will be asked to nominate a non-profit for the award. Once Random Acts has verified the non-profit, we will donate the funds directly to the organization.
